Your right maybe I cant read the tag in the big crate, or I wasnt understanding the boss when he said can you help build a machine to sort FEDERAL brass, with our head stamp?????? I dunno? Maybe I was working at some other bullet place? I bet that was it.

Ahhh. Jason @ Nosler would be a much more appropriate handle. I guess then it's pshychosematic... because all the Federal brass I've ever used was garbage. But hey... slap a Nosler headstamp on it and it's golden. Maybe y'all should try that with their Fusion Bullets... HAAAA. Whatever you did with that machine it works well... I weighed every piece and they were all within the +/- 2 grain range. Good brass... even though it is Federal. ~JT

Sorry if I came off a little crappy. I have been having alot going on on my end. I am just now trying to get back to life after loosing my dad way too early. LRH is one of my regular visits and I dont mean to be like that. I infact dont work there anymore due to the wonderful management style. But I was there during some neat times. The first accubond machine, nosler brass, nosler rifle, cool stuff. Dream job actually. If the owner and gen manager could realize the value of people. I watched 130 people go through in the two years I was there. How are you supposed to remember peoples names at that rate.

It's sad to hear you say that Jason... I actually noticed that both times I was there. I declined the offer to come and join you there at Nosler twice. After Matt Smith left the Ballistics Lab it seemed like the management style changed to the big business/corperate philosophy. In fact, I still have some .300 WSM brass with no head stamp that he gave me when I was down there interviewing in about 1999/2000... y'all were helping to shoot some of the early data for Winchester. Thanks for outing them on thier brass... a lot of guys have been speculating on that.

Sorry to hear about your father... that's rough. Good shooting, ~JT

I have some 270win -it was nice just loading it up and shooting it .

It looks nice -but so did my last girlfriend ..haha

I don't like when companies don't treat their people well , i think nosler -everything is too expensive.Selling the nbt's in boxes of 50 is bs ,might as well buy custom bullets.

Sorry bout your Dad..

I loaded and fired one piece 10 times to find out how tough the brass was and the primer pocket is still nice and tight. What more could you want? ~JT

300 Yard group shot useing Winchester Brass and noe wieghing or case sorting
